If you’ve always wanted a cat, (and who hasn’t??) now is the time to get one.
To save lives and find homes for hundreds of abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens in Baltimore, the Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance is holding its fifth annual Baltimore 500: A Race to Save Lives promotion.
During the month of June, national Adopt-A-Cat month, the Maryland SPCA, Baltimore Humane Society and Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter—all members of BAWA—will waive adoption fees for cats and kittens.
“We are now in ‘kitten season’ when there is a surge of adorable, unwanted kittens entering animal shelters that are already full with cats needing homes,” said Aileen Gabbey, Executive Director of the MD SPCA. “Our goal is to find forever homes for at least 500 homeless cats and kittens in our shelters throughout June, so we encourage people to consider adopting their first cat or adding to their family.”
